Aleya Dao had a dramatic awakening to dimensions not normally accessible to the rest of us. The literature from people with similar experiences seems to be growing exponentially. Many common themes have emerged, as people describe both their direct experiences and their interpretation of the meaning of what they have observed or been told by their guides. Unless you think mass hysteria is overtaking the planet, the fact that these messages echo one another in their essence, adds layer upon layer of credibility. Aleya, whose background includes Degrees in Oriental Medicine and Acupuncture, is well-equipped to...

When I got this for review, I was intrigued and immediately searched the house for colored pencils to try it out. I couldn't find them and tried markers, but you really need sharpened pencils to have the control you need to cope with some of the the mind-blowingly intricate designs in the book. I then discovered that there is a whole genre of adult coloring books, and I'm not surprised. The concentration required to do a decent job of staying in the lines has just the right level of mindlessness to put one into a meditative state -...

It is exciting to see so many people opening up to the magic of the universe and tuning into their psychic abilities. As with artists or musicians, there are many different ways they express their vision of what they are inspired to communicate. Psychic mediums generally use their gifts to bring comfort, healing of the spirit and a better understanding of “how things work,” the purpose of life and the nature of death and the afterlife. In Soul Secrets, Miki Jacobs introduces her own concept of the “TEAM,” a group of spirits that surrounds each of...

Harness the life-changing power of the Default Mode Network of your mind If you've ever noticed how friends and family describe themselves to new people, you'll likely hear them describing themselves through stories and metastories--the stories of our lives. "There are no truths, only stories," as Thomas King points out, and yet these stories need not stay stuck in one particular type of archetypal plot type, but can be changed in ways that benefit our emotional, mental, physical and spiritual health. Remapping Your Mind provides us with a road map by which we view the inner landscape...

Being busy is an easy option, says Tony Crabbe. Easy? Cramming work, meetings, chores, errands, social media, exercise, hobbies, and family time into our waking hours—that's easy? Yes, because busyness keeps us from making the "difficult decisions" of having to choose what to do. It's also a method of avoidance, of feeling productive even though we're procrastinating from doing a hard task. And it's addictive, a dopamine rush every time we check our smartphones. If only we could better manage our time, find a way to increase our productivity, acquire more of whatever it is we're chasing after...

Have you tried to accomplish a goal but something stopped you? Do you have legitimate reasons for why you get stuck or why you don't have the time? Do you make an effort, encounter a setback, and give up? Bernard Roth, cofounder of the Stanford D-School, teaches students in his "Designer in Society" class to stop thinking about achieving their goals, and start doing. By using the mind-set of designers, the students learn to become more effective at solving problems, more focused on things that really matter, and more satisfied with their lives. They develop the confidence to...

When we speak of something having “heart” or of the need to “follow our heart,” what exactly does that mean? For many of us, such expressions seem warm and inviting but are, nevertheless, understandably vague. However, a recently released DVD helps to eliminate much of the confusion surrounding this often-nebulous topic, offering clear, concise answers applicable in both practical and philosophical contexts. In “The Power of the Heart” (2014), director Drew Heriot (co-creator of the immensely popular video “The Secret” (2006)) presents a series of engaging monologues on the subject, discussing it from metaphysical, spiritual and even scientific...

How to clear possessions, thoughts, and obstacles to your ideal life Therapist John Benz is no stranger to self-help programs, having attended Weight Watchers meetings since age five. When Benz observed a connection between emotions his clients felt related to their possessions, and discovered that people who took steps to remove their disempowering possessions made the most progress toward attaining their goals, he took a closer look at the art of clearing. While the concept of clearing is not entirely new--and feng shui practitioners have been advising for years that we pay closer attention to the...

ONE VOICE demonstrates beautifully how one act of kindness can create a ripple that lives on and on, touching many lives. Intention to do something good is at the foundation of a young boy's actions to gather funds for a peace memorial. Since kindness generates goodwill and peace, a chain reaction occurs from one person to another which began with the considerate offer of giving a seat on the bus to a pregnant woman. Her heart is touched by such caring which, in turn, generates thoughtfulness in her actions and spreads throughout the town as though kindness is...

Bunny Taliaferro had speed in his legs, running every chance he could. He ran so much that people nicknamed him Bunny. His parents lacked financial endowment but managed to creatively provide a homemade mit while his dad positioned an old tire hanging from a tree for Bunny to use as a strike zone with his pitches. First freshman ever to earn varsity letters in football, basketball and baseball, Bunny's favorite was baseball.

Listen to the news, and you'd think the world is a violent, angry, unjust, corrupt place. Why is humanity heaping such atrocities upon each other? To the Dalai Lama, the answer is clear: a lack of compassionate moral responsibility. Change, he says, won't happen through governments. The social revolution needs to happen inside our own minds, through individual transformation. But he urges us not to be discouraged by bad news; it only reflects "a small portion of the human story. Beneath the ugly tip of that glacier lies a vast reservoir of sensitivity and kindness—and each of us...

The title might be a mouthful, but if you long to be the most interesting person at the water cooler, you’ll have to read Louis Proud’s "Strange Electromagnetic Dimensions – The Science of the Unexplainable," and share some of his fascinating stories of the strange electro-magnetic dimensions that surround all of us. In one chapter, he points out the similarities between being struck by lightning and getting an electrical shock, then he ties the two together to practicing psychics. In another chapter, he delves into the difference between ionizing and non-ionizing radiation, and as academic as...

Did you know, due to the high protein content and unique amino acid composition in quinoa, it's the perfect nourishment for humans on long-term space missions, according to NASA? In this book, you'll find a sprinkling of such tidbits about the ancient seed, as well as information on its history, how to use it, and how to prepare it. Each recipe comes with its own lush photograph, enticing the reader...

I found the Shiva Syndrome to be a truly exciting read. I went back and forth between wanting to scan the pages quickly, because it was so exciting, to really slowing down to ingest and understand the technical information. It had a really good blend of science and spirituality. The story basically had every alternative science-based subject under the sun plus the added intrigue of a black op backed by the government. So, if I had to categorize it, I would say it is a metaphysical thriller, while knowing that it truly falls under many genres. ...

Many people are opening to their intuitive gifts with a sense of service and excitement to discover this direct connection to source. As they open their hearts to heal the world, they are in danger, according to Dave Markowitz, of taking on the pain and illness of others. With the right training and techniques, they can avoid these effects by learning to discern what it theirs and what is not, and allowing what is not to pass through, leaving them unaffected.

According to the author, "divine audacity is bold spiritual living, living under the radical premise that I A M divine."

Beginning from a foundation of meditation she guides you into using and cultivating your imagination to find an expression of divine identity that you feel comfortable inhabiting.

Self-help books tend to be very earnest and intense, this one however is about lightning up. It talks about the great value of laughter not only to improving your mental state but your physical state as well. The hormones released by laughing relax the blood vessels, lower your blood pressure ¬and reduce other markers of stress. The good news is that you can fake it till you make it. Faking or forcing laughter, it turns out, gives you pretty much the same benefits as doing the real thing spontaneously. The author went to India to...

This book provides an impressively wide-ranging overview of the interrelationships and interdependencies among the environmental, economic, sociological, and political issues at play in the world today. They feed into the rather pressing question of whether humanity will be able to continue its existence on this planet with some semblance of order and dignity, or whether our social and environmental systems will break down into chaos. As clearly evidenced from the exhaustive annotation and impressive detail, the book is aimed at academics, researchers, and decision-makers charged with navigating their companies, organizations or political institutions into the precarious and unknown...

I resonated very strongly with this book, probably because I have a very independent streak and don’t like the idea that we are here being judged on whether we learn this or that lesson well enough, or if we’ve been really good or bad. What this book does, differently from most other books dealing with manifestation and the law of attraction, is to present a picture of reality that is at once really liberating and rather intimidating. Liberating in the sense of making one's particular manifestation of reality a matter between you and your consciousness/soul. Angels, demons, past...

After all, he mused, life was doing a pretty good job of creating a human being from a single fertilized cell, growing trees from seeds, keeping the planets in orbit, and all manner of events leading to the perfection of the universe.

When a medium writes a book, they have to do two things. First, they must speak in a language and tone that their readers can relate to. Second, they must tell great stories. Manhattan medium Thomas John delivers beautifully on both counts. Although the author insists that, "This is not a book about dead people. This is a book about universal lessons..." It is, and it isn't. Every passing, every death, has universal lessons for all to learn. By sharing the stories that arise between the living and the dead, the author gives the reader deeper...

This book is a worthy addition to the near-death experience literature. It begins with a tautly written account of an ice climbing adventure in Alberta, Canada. What started out as a day climb by two college friends turned into a nightmare that would test to the very limit their physical and emotional strength, and ultimately their will to live.

In particular this book explores the life of Jesus Christ within the context of New Thought principles and the spiritual laws regarding the regeneration of the physical body. This is a superb book for those transitioning from mainstream Christianity into the realm of inner consciousness and awakening.

Original thinking by Glenn Parry This book is modest and intimate in tone, but vast and lofty in ambition. History and folk tales weave through the narrative like warp and weft, while nature provides the ancient patterns that we have forgotten. Parry explores the devolution of our relationship with nature from regarding her as mother and teacher to becoming a source of riches to be plundered or an adversary to be mastered. Original thinking perceives life as an integral whole, fed by knowledge and inspiration from the natural environment. There was a turning point in art history...

There is no denying that a good portion of "Through the Flames" makes for difficult reading. Whether describing the horrible plane crash that he barely survived or the subsequent and still-ongoing recovery from the burns that should have killed him, author Allan Lokos's subject matter is at once horrific and riveting. It is also brutally graphic; there is no room for sentimentality here. Much of the first half of the book reads like a daily journal of pain, surgeries, hope won and lost, fear, relief and redemption -- and all of it without an ounce of self-pity. If...

While the types of insights and epiphanies experienced can vary greatly, the authors share observations of patterns that become apparent when reviewing peoples' experiences.

Intriguingly, while the phrase “original thought” might bring creativity and “new” ideas to mind, there is a deeper significance to the title of this book with a very different meaning from the idea of the sense of origins, and already existing—that which originally existed, and is already here.

When director Marie-Rose Phan-le sought to chronicle the healing practices and traditions of indigenous cultures around the globe, she embarked on a journey that went beyond mere documentary filmmaking. In “Talking Story,” the filmmaker has captured rare footage of healers plying their craft in such remote locations as Peru, Vietnam, Nepal, India, China and Hawaii. But, in the process of telling their stories, she also discovered her own calling as an emerging healing practitioner, carrying on the traditions of these gifted forerunners and learning much about herself. However, in documenting the work of these remarkable souls (not to...

Author Susan Anderson coined the term “Outer Child” nearly fifteen years ago as a way to describe the part of us that acts out the feelings our “inner child” is experiencing in inappropriate ways. She describes our Outer Child as impulsive, with problems of resisting our primal urges and regulating our behavior, even when it’s in our best interest to do so. Simply put, it’s self-sabotage at its best. If you’re the one having a third glass of wine at a party after you’ve established a two-drink limit for yourself, you’ve just encountered...

For those of you who are not familiar with him, Norman Rosenthal was the first doctor to recognize the symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), leading him to pioneer the success of light therapy for the condition. Needless to say, his credentials in the world of psychiatric research are well established. But I have to wonder at how many people are not aware of his other talent, that of being a prolific writer with incredible information to share. In his book, "The Gift of Adversity," Dr. Rosenthal illustrates in a delightfully readable form, some of...

I had never heard of "plant dieting" before picking up this book, but quickly learned that it's a ceremonial practice to deepen one's relationship with nature by ingesting specific plants in order to receive their healing energy and wisdom. In California, it's not unusual to find edible marigold flowers or dandelions in a bag of mixed greens from the Farmers' Market. Still, the idea of ingesting a plant sounded to me like a formula for an altered mental state. I'd rather meditate on a plant than take it into my body. What if I ingest something poisonous? Well,...

What a magnificent book! The author is a Unity minister in San Antonio, Texas and this book is based on the Twelve Spiritual Powers taught by Unity Founder Charles Fillmore. However, she does not just present us with the same information he shared. She has updated and deepened the understanding and teaching while giving practical ways to live the spiritual powers. The powers are: faith, understanding, will, imagination, zeal, power, love, wisdom, strength, order, release, and life. For each of these we are given text to understand the power, a meditation to use, and a practice to...

The subtitle to Brenda Michaels’s book is “A Miraculous Journey to Healing,” and while some may identify more with the journey Michaels takes than the so-called miracles she describes, it’s clear that Michaels’s story is an important and urgent one. Diagnosed with cancer three times, each one progressively more emotionally, spiritually and physically devastating, the journey Michaels refers to in the title takes her through alcohol abuse and detrimental relationships with her father and first husband to clueless doctors, ineffectual cancer treatments and a series of self-defeating life choices that ultimately lead her to a more enlightened understanding...
